Have the clothing to be dressed for the possible eventuality of being stranded in the middle of nowhere in the winter. This doesn’t have to be bulky clothing.

When wet, cotton wicks body heat away 25 times faster from the body than if the victim were not wearing clothing. Check out our page on dress in the winter at
Try to keep your gas tank as full as possible and top it up when it gets to half full as you never know when you may have to spend the night in your vehicle.
